Has vitamin E helped anyone with fibrocystic breasts?

I have been diagnosed with fibrocystic breasts and was told to take vitamin E. I started at 200 units, then when that didn't seem to work, I went to 400 units...then up to 600 units. I've been on 600 units for 6 weeks now and still have the fibrocystic lumps. I think I may be experiencing some side effects from too much vitamin E, and I am not sure it is working at all. I just saw the specialist today and she just said to keep taking it.

Has it helped anyone else and if so, how much did you take? Thanks

I had never heard of doing that. They took me off caffeine and that helped. Do you do caffeine (coffee, tea, chocolate)?

Re: Has vitamin E helped anyone with fibrocystic breasts?

I never drank a lot of coffee...maybe half a cup a few times a week. I ate some chocolate once in awhile. I've completely cut out coffee now, but I miss the little dab that I used to drink.

I'm a little frustrated that giving up the little coffee I did drink and taking lots of vitamin E haven't seemed to help. Just wondering if that worked for others or if anything else worked.

Thanks!

Since you aren't in the south, I assume you don;t drink a lot of iced tea! What about soda?

No, I don't drink tea or pop. My only source of caffeine is an occasional small serving of something chocolate. Hmmm.
